North West Photography Courses
At North West Photography Courses believe that Nothing is stopping you taking great photographs and the people who have been on the courses say it has improved their enjoyment of photography more than they hoped and has given them skills that genuinely last a lifetime.

Whether you want to get off your camera’s AUTO setting or you are an advanced photographer wanting to improve your techniques North West Photography Courses can help and do it in a way that is relaxed, confidence building and fun.

Based in the lovely rural setting of Birtle close to Bury, Rochdale and Manchester and less than hour from all the major centres of Lancashire. The 'classroom' for most of the group courses is a private area in the historic Pack Horse Inn. Refreshments are provided and a sandwich lunch in the price of the courses.

Parking is free and plentiful.

North West Photography Courses make the most of the surroundings, for example visiting a local livery yard where there is always something to catch the photographer’s eye and in all four seasons there is something in the natural landscape nearby to photograph. The courses are not hikes, using footpaths and quiet tracks and all that is asked is that you look at the weather forecast beforehand and dress sensibly for being outdoors, rain or shine.

Small group courses are available and one to one courses, along with gift vouchers starting at £25.00 – the perfect gift for a birthday or special occasion . There is a partnership with the famous East Lancashire Railway to offer behind the scenes photography days on the railway, getting to places not open to the public for a truly unforgettable photographic experience.

The photography courses run at the weekends and some during the week and the website has a full calendar of events with a totally secure on-line booking facility to make it easy to book with confidence.

Courses in image editing are avialable (Photoshop and Lightroom and similar packages.)

Opening Times

* Courses run on different days of the week, between 09.30 and 16.00. Check website for details
